Living in the present

Posted by Tanya on January 3, 2013 at 1:10 AM

Happy New Year! 

This time of year, many of us make resolutions: change what we dislike the most about ourselves, travel more, spend more time with our families... or rather reinforce the notion of living in the future.

Shouldn't the real question be: "How am I going to live in the present moment each day, every day."  Maybe its simply a matter of asking yourself, "How will I conduct myself today. How will I watch life unfold today."

I've had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with 12 honest, down-to-earth women entrepreneurs in a collaborative blog article entitled:

"13 entrepreneurs talk about overcoming the hard stuff, learning lessons and what's next in 2013."

Together we answered three questions:

  1. What's the hardest thing you've had to overcome the last year? Why?
  2. What are 3-5 lessons you learned over the last year? Why?
  3. If we were to meet one year from today, what has to have happened over the year for you to feel happy about your progress, both professionally and personally?

Nadine Nicholson & Co. - a beautiful Mentor, Business Communicator, and Professional Co-Active Coach - has put together yet another brilliant article: http://nadinenicholson.com/personal-stories/13-entrepreneurs-talk-2013/

When you master living your present moments one day at a time, you'll see yourself change right before your own surprised eyes. You'll see yourself overcome the hard stuff, learn and honor the lessons, and look forward to what's next!

I love the idea of letting life unfold, and would love to hear your answers to these 3 questions also!

Thank you Tanya for the pleasant reminder of 'living in the present'. We should all do more of this often especially when we can with our loved ones. Noted!

Tanya, you are an example of someone who chooses to rise from dark places to bring light to the world. Your story of your Mom is so raw and real. You channelled your gifts, giving her energy and light within. These are memories you'll never forget. Your story is an inspiration!

Thank you Nadine, you have me blushing..Its ironic as I was just reflecting on Pablo Picasso's life story and how he inspires me: His earliest work referred to as his Blue Period, depicts a darker time in his life ? lost, loneliness, feelings of physical loss? In later years, Picasso turned to harmonious colors and sinuous contours that evoke an overall biomorphic sensuality ? life experience, love and passion.
Pablo Picasso, wanted to become a painter and became Picasso.

I was lost and awakened upon studying the ancient Art of traditional Chinese medicine? xo
